  2. Iyappan temple

    The temple is near trichy court.

    Importance: There is no hundi in the temple. There is a letter box which says “prayer letters to God”. Anyone can write their wishes and drop it in the box. The letters will be presented before Iyappan on uthra star day of every month prayers done. There is a note near the box which says there is no charge for this. The temple is full of green plants well maintained and good path all around. Instruction boards are there with positive request.

    We see stones errected with wordings which give importance to mother quoted by great persons. Another special thing is we see small stones collected from holy rivers and holy places all over the world and each placed on small platforms. They have written the place of the stone. Everyday they do pooja to this stones also. They say having darshan of such collection of holy stones in one place will definitely remove hurdles in ones life and make them prosper. The other deities in the premises are Kanni moola Ganapthy, Sakthi- Vinayakar, Bagavathi amman and Navagraha.
